Comments from the owner:
What do you love most about your home/property?
My wife and I lived here for 4 years before moving to Ireland. It was the first property we bought together and we absolutely loved living there. The top floors are always full of light and we loved the spiral staircase feature. The bedroom is absolutely massive and stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Having access to the communal courtyard and secure parking was a big positive for us, we got to know our neighbours and there's a real sense of community in the mews.
Why are you selling?
Having relocated a few years ago to Ireland, we're now looking to buy a bigger home for ourselves now that our son is growing up.
What do you love about the area?
The communal courtyard, New River Walkway and Clissold park all on your doorstep, not to mention Church Street, Highbury Barn and Newington Green all within 10-15 min walks. Favourite local spots are Primeur (a boutique restaurant service different menus with paired organic wine every day two door down), Jolene (their own mill producing the best pastries in London) and the Snooty Fox (used to host Ukelele open mic nights and still hosting the yearly london ale fare). If you're a foodie, you're going to be spoilt for choice.
Commuting wise you're about 20 minutes cycle from the City and 20-30minutes by public transport to the West End.
The accommodation comprises entrance leading into the dining area and adjoining kitchen, with feature spiral staircase providing access to both the lower and upper floors. The dining area offers fantastic living space, with adjoining kitchen comprising a modern range of matching white fronted wall and base units with work surfaces incorporating inset sink unit, induction hob with overhead extractor and electric oven below, and further space for appliances. The first floor is spanned by an impressive reception, flooded with natural light, whilst the lower level provides a generous double bedroom with a walk in wardrobe, metro-tiled bathroom and separate WC. The property has also been fitted with a smart lighting and heating system where schedules can be control remotely, handy for saving electricity and heating whilst out.
The property is enviably located in a much sought after residential mews within easy access of Canonbury, Stoke Newington and Arsenal stations, as well as numerous regular bus routes, all providing excellent connections into the City and West End.
